Waiting for a Different Bus


  

How many same buses must pass           before a different bus comes.


In the Ruins of History...


                                                                                                                                                     ...perhaps a clue

Looking for a map to help us find our way

 

 

 

 

Sometimes what we are looking for               is too close to see.



Seen from Above...


...the world is very small

Not Too Far From the Maddening Crowd


                                         

                                            Twenty minutes, give or take, from the city center is Riverdale Farm.

Learning from those who love winter


                                                                                 

                                                                                                          In the valley of  Riverdale Hill,

                                                                                                              dogs and their people.

Full Moon Rising


                                                                 

                                                                                        and I'm in a tea-cup.

 

 

A Fish Out of Water...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                         might learn to fly

 

 

 

 

           a seed fallen

           between the cracks  

           might,  against all odds

           blossom

          

 

 

 


                      Imagination touches the edge of what is known and gives form to what is otherwise elusive.

Love is in the Eye of the Beholder


Happy Valentines Day

Either Side of the Door


Today was Declared a Snow Day


Continuing with the Momentum of Change

 

                                       Ripping up and moving forward.


Order Invites Beauty


                                                                            A space we want to work in.

Real Life is Often Better than Fantasy


Chaos Comes Before Order


 

Today was spent going through art storage and studio in an attempt to find and re-order space.

It is a daunting task which we had enormous success with (even if it does not appear so).

We will continue tomorrow...

Introducing our latest video... Counting on a Miracle


The Poetry of Objects


                                                  

                                                              ...each one precariously supported by the other.

Windows of Ice


 

 

 

 

 

                                            "Do you have something to say?"


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                "No."


Still in the Midst of the Storm


You are Invited


Trying for Exactness


 

 

                                Working on invitations is exciting and very satisfying, when they are finally complete.

                                But the process takes time and there is an exhausting search for perfection.

                                Fine tuning the colour, the type, the composition to represent the artist's work.

                                The most difficult is getting the placement right for double-sided printing.

                                That is a bit crazy making.

 

'What Are We Waiting For?

 

The unexpected guest,

the weather to change,

inspiration, invitation, exhaltation.

The perfect circumstance

to surround us with abundance.

The strength to keep waiting.

 


 

This is part of the new exhibition showing five paintings by E.J. Gold from our permanent collection.

The Show Must Come Down


 

 

                       The process of taking down a show always allows for another seeing of it or seeing it anew.

                        There is both a sadness and an excitement. Sadness that what was will not be again and

                         excitement for the unexpected surprise of what comes next.

 

 

Over and Under



Picasso Thursday


Seeing from Every Angle


The Whole is More Than the Sum of Its Parts


These three collages were made into transparencies and placed one on top of the other, held over a light and photographed. There placement was not random. There were elements, curves, angles and perspectives in each which corresponded so perfectly as to make one wonder how such a thing is possible, considering that each was made independent of the other.

 

 


Expecting Snow


Cold Enough to See Your Breath


Winter Without Snow...


 

                                                                                ... shades of tarnished silver

 

 

Just in Time


 

Today was spent looking back in time,

using old photos to give us clues about the attitudes and experiences

of those who lived a very different reality than the one we know now.

The Little House that Could...


...be a shelter from the storm.

The Book of Eight


 

Today Sae received a book from a fellow artist and friend in Germany.

The above image is a page from the book entitled 'ACHT' translated it means EIGHT.

Below is Sae's collage response.


The Book of One


Cold and Bright/Sharp and Kind



The Boiler Room

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a busy week rehanging all the gallery spaces from top to bottom 

including the studio in the basement 

which was the special project of

Eron Boyd.

 

Visitors are most welcome to visit all 

the spaces and the basement is the 

hot house where much of the work 

is created.

 

A reminder to come to the winter 

reception this Saturday, today,

from 2 - 5pm.


Giddy-up and Whoa


 

 

A partnership of opposites.

Hats and Gloves


Trying to Find the Way



All Wrapped Up and Nowhere to Go



The Hat Matters


Floyd Kuptana adapted new look.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland


 

 

This was the first gesture in the collage gallery

begun this morning when Sae arrived with branches.

The window scene created the atmosphere to complete the space

for a continuation of 'A Winter's Poem'. 

Our Christmas reception will be held on

Saturday December 15th from 2 - 5 pm.

All are welcome.

Beneath the Stair Sculpture Studio


                                                                            Now we can work a little warmer.
